Abandon and Abide

Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience writes about what to do when times are hard:
“It’s what my mother said, Ann: When it is hardest — that is when you sing the loudest. The devil flees at a hymn.” At the last, when the cancer wound tighter, folks would ask how she was — and my father-in-law would say, “Good! She’s singing all the time.” And we knew how hard it was — and how good she knew He is.”
Ann then plays a song which has these words,
Abandon the worries… and Abide in the Word. Abandon the fears… and Abide in the Father. Abandon the hurts… and Abide in His heart. Abandon the cares… because Christ will never abandon you. It’s what I self-preach again and again to the fearful sinner who is me: Abandon and Abide.
